PrecisionTx To Melt Fat and For Less Sweat

Would you like to lift and revitalize your face and neck without the look of being “done”?

Melt fat under the chin and neck

Define the jawline

Reduce sagging skin

Take the next step to a fresher more youthful appearance without the look of being done. PrecisionTx delivers laser energy under the skin to treat fat and tighten tissue. This one-time treatment offers minimal downtime and increases collagen production, which improves skin elasticity, thickness, and texture.

How Does It Work?

PrecisionTx is a minimally invasive procedure to treat small areas of fat in areas such as the lower face and neck or arms. Through a small incision a very thin tube containing the PrecisionTx laser fiber is inserted and delivers thermal energy directly to the treatment area.

PrecisionTx For Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis, abnormal excessive sweating, causes anxiety and embarrassment, and can affect your lifestyle if you avoid certain types of clothing or constantly need to change clothes. In addition to a more youthful appearance, PrecisionTx can also be used to permanently reduce excessive sweating.

What Causes Hyperhidrosis?

There are two types of hyperhidrosis that develop from different causes

Primary hyperhidrosis occurs when the nerves that regulate your sweat glands become overactive, triggering sweat even when you don't need to sweat to cool down. The excessive sweating occurs at any time, or all the time, although feeling stressed or nervous often makes it worse.

You may inherit a tendency to develop primary hyperhidrosis, but it's not caused by an underlying health condition. It commonly affects your armpits, palms, feet, and face.

Secondary hyperhidrosis causes sweating all over your body. It develops due to an underlying health condition.

How Is Excessive Sweating Treated?

If you have secondary hyperhidrosis, the underlying medical condition must be treated. Otherwise, treatment for primary hyperhidrosis often begins with prescription-strength antiperspirants or creams, or you may be prescribed medications. In extreme cases, you could have surgery to remove sweat glands in your armpits or block nerves.

PrecisionTx is a minimally invasive, and is FDA-cleared to treat primary axillary gland hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating in your underarms.

How Does PrecisionTx Treat Excessive Underarm Sweating?

PrecisionTx is a minimally-invasive procedure, so a local anesthetic is administered, then a very small incision is made that allows a narrow tube to be inserted under your skin.

The tube contains a specialized fiber that allows laser energy to reach a precise target. When your sweat glands are targeted, heat from the laser destroys the glands.
